Waxed 750 mL bottle.
Pours a viscous oily brown color, opaque, with a thin dark tan head. Nose of roasty, bitter coffee, slightly nutty, roasted malt, oak and trace vanilla sweetness. Silky smooth, medium thick body, despite coffee presence never turns overly roasty and only a mild presence of alcohol heat in the finish. Flavor is a major improvement over the base; milk chocolate, coffee with cream, light roast, honey, powdered chocolate, and coffee ice cream. Not as robust or complex as GI BCBCS, but that's not a knock. Could use a little more barrel, coffee, roast, or anything... but again the richness of the body and smoothness of the finish makes up for the shortcomings of the flavor for me.

From 06/07/14 notes. 750ml bottle poured into my Kane teku glass. Had right before ANTEAD Cocoa Nibs, liked this one better.
a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks great, less head and cabronation than the vanilla had.
s - Smells of dark chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, cocoa, light vanilla, toasted malts, burnt malts, light toffee and caramel, light bourbon, and milk chocolate. Nose is very good, but coffee is not as strong as I would have liked. More coffee as it warms up, but still not a ton.
t - Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee , dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla, oak, light bourbon, toffee, cocoa, and toasted malts, light caramel. More coffee than the nose, especially as it warms up. Letting it warm up I think I like the taste a little better than the vanilla version, though they are close.
m - Medium body and low carbonation. Not super thick but heavier body than last year's version.
o - Overall I thought this was very good but not quite as good as the vanilla version. Well worth checking out and really looking forward to getting them again next year. I think of all 3 variations this one benefits the most from letting it warm up, to get more coffee out of it.
